The most complete course on ConvertKit available

Looking for the most in-depth and systematic course on both ConvertKit and email marketing? Look no further. Learn the ins-and-outs of segmenting your audience, automating your nurturing, and profiting from perfectly timed and personalized pitches.
You use (or plan on using) ConvertKit...
You know how important email marketing is for your business...
You want to send super personalized emails to your list...
You want to give your subscribers an incredibly rewarding and rich experience...
But here you are, sending one-size-fits-all newsletters and sales emails to everyone on your list with ¯\_(ツ)_/¯‍ results and lots of time spent running around on the content treadmill.
It’s easy to get overwhelmed by email marketing and automation. You’ve heard all the conference talks and podcast interviews touting how badass marketing automation is. You've read the articles about these businesses that have ridiculously sophisticated and sexy automation yielding even more ridiculous revenue.
But making email marketing work for your business? And ensuring you're doing it right? Well, that can seem like a pipe dream. Instead, you're...
  • Staring at a hot mess of tags on your subscriber dashboard (“ I segmenting correctly?”)
  • Writing yet another broadcast newsletter and hoping your subscribers like and want what you have to say (going through your head: “this keeps my list warm, ...right?”)
  • And stressing over when you can justify doing another big launch so that you can get some much needed cash in the door.
Sound about right?

It's one thing to have access to ConvertKit. But knowing what to do with all this power...?

For many of us, logging into ConvertKit with the goal of fully automating your business is a bit like walking into a big box hardware store and thinking to yourself, “I have no idea how, but I think it's possible to build a house with all this stuff.”
Power drills, screws, lumber, and aisles and aisles of who knows what.
Or, in your case, visual automation rules, tags, custom fields, email sequences, delay timers, events, and on and on.
Hi there, I’m Brennan Dunn and I’m the creator of Mastering ConvertKit.
I’ve been a big fan of what Nathan Barry & the ConvertKit team have been building, and a little over a year ago I decided to finally make the switch.
“Somebody needs to translate Brennan Dunn’s Mastering Drip course to ConvertKit because all of the existing ConvertKit courses just cover the basics.”
Joel Hooks, about a year ago
Over the years, I’ve helped thousands of marketers and business owners better understand how to better use email marketing through keynote talks, workshops, podcast interviews, in-depth articles, and my course, Mastering Drip.
And now that I’m happily settled on ConvertKit, I wanted to create the premiere training course for someone who wants to architect the right automated marketing for their business.

More than just technicals, included is an entire framework

This course is not just how to use all the technical bits of ConvertKit.
Instead, it’s a complete tried-and-true framework on how to take your expertise and the products/services you have to offer, package it all up into a bunch of really smart automation that gets more subscribers onto your list, discover who your audience is and what they need from you, and consistently deliver highly relevant and personalized content and pitches at exactly the right time.
Quite the mouthful, eh? But the long and short of it is that you’ll be able to give your subscribers a much better experience – leading more of them to buy.
The course teaches the same framework that I've helped clients like Smart Passive Income, Copyblogger, and others use to take a systematic approach to how they deliver better, automated experiences over email using ConvertKit.
So if you’re struggling with not just how to use ConvertKit, but what you should be doing with ConvertKit, then this course is for you.
“This course takes using ConvertKit to the next level.”
“I have been a ConvertKit customer for years and thought I was pretty good at email automation, but it is only after taking the Mastering ConvertKit course that I have truly understood and been able to unlock its true potential.

I knew that Brennan Dunn was clever at email automation, but looking over his shoulder and gaining insight into the processes he implements in his own business has been enlightening. This course takes using ConvertKit to the next level.”

Be a "fly on the wall" with me, Pat Flynn, and his team
In early 2020, I was brought on by Smart Passive Income to help them completely transform how they do email marketing for their business. We ended up with close to 10 hours of of raw, unfiltered audio from our 2-days together, along with plenty of "a-ha" moments. Included in the course (with Pat's blessing) are the recordings from our time together. The perfect complement to your next long drive or workout session!
9 hours and 24 minutes of raw recordings, including:
  • How we reasoned through converting from a "same thing for everyone" broadcast model to a fully automated powerhouse
  • Conceptual and implementation roadblocks, and how we overcame them
  • How Smart Passive Income is now segmenting their list, automating their pitching, and planning for growth
“It's made a quicker and more noticeable difference to my business and income than anything else I've tried over the last 5 years...”
“I set up Brennans initial automation and sequences, by the book, in March. Up to then, my email funnel converted 5-10 of my yearly memberships per month. This had been the usual for the last year. Since turning on the new automation, I now get about 5 times that. This has added 5 figures to my sales each month, and is still rising. Many thanks to Brennan and team for the excellent strategy and course. It's made a quicker and more noticeable difference to my business and income than anything else I've tried over the last 5 years.”
Allen Matthews

Mastering ConvertKit is designed to work for you, no matter how much experience or time you have.

Hours of content? I don’t think I have the time!”
No lie: this course is deep. It’s in-depth. It’s looong. But don’t let that worry you, especially if you’re just getting started with email marketing.
When you begin the course, I’m going to prescribe a set number of lessons for you. These lessons take just a few hours to go through and implement, but they’ll get you started with doing some basic segmentation and having some solid automation in place.
I don’t expect you to go through everything I’ve included right away. You’ll start with getting your basic building blocks in order, and over time you’ll layer on optimizations – like sending your subscribers SMS messages during a pitch sequence – that make what you have even better. You have lifetime access to the material, there’s no rush.
(Preemptive shoutout to that person who will binge all the material in one sitting. When you join, you get everything all at once. So enjoy!)
“This has to be the hands-down most value jam-packed, well organized & thorougly thought out program I’ve ever purchased.”
“It’s amazing. Nope. It’s “holy-shirts-and-pats-batman!” amazing. Over the years, I’ve purchased quite a few courses/programs. Some have delivered value, some haven’t. This course though… Holy crap Brennan, it’s really well done. This has to be the hands-down most value jam-packed, well organized & thorougly thought out program I’ve ever purchased. Ever.”

“It was a steal for what I paid.”
“Hey Brennan, I just wanted to quickly share: this course is so great! So much depth yet easily accessible even if you’re short on time. And you make it so easy to follow along. You have expertise showing through in every video. Really great! It was a steal for what I paid.”
Holger Frohloff
“Managed to double revenue in 2020 thanks to this course.”
Bálint wanted a course that went beyond the basics.
He had tried other courses, but they were simply a step above what you'd find in ConvertKit's technical documentation: how to set up sequences, how to design an email template, etc. He wanted something jam packed with strategy that really took ConvertKit to the next level. And that's what he found with Mastering ConvertKit.
You're going to want to also hear what he has to say about the community included with the course.
“I don't want to be the guy who keeps pushing for sales.”
Meet Andy, the owner of
Like most honest marketers, Andy doesn't want to ever come off as too "sales-y" with his audience. He's known for a while that sending "the right message to the right people at the right time" is the best way to do things... but how to actually do that? Who knows!
Check out what he has to say about the course, and how it's helped him go from feeling constantly apologetic whenever selling his books, videos, and coaching to feeling confident that he's only pitching people on what they need and when they're ready.
Who's behind this course?

👋 Hey there! My name is Brennan Dunn, and I'm the creator of Mastering ConvertKit.

I've been dabbling in marketing automation for the better part of 7 years now. First with Mailchimp, then Infusionsoft, later Drip, and now I've finally settled on ConvertKit. Over the years, I've spoken at numerous conferences, hosted workshops, and have appeared on dozens of podcasts extoling the virtues of email marketing done right.

Nathan Barry, a longtime friend and the CEO of ConvertKit, asked me to create a course comparable to my best-selling course on Drip, Mastering Drip, for his customers. A year later, that course now exists – clocking in at over 15 hours of in-depth lessons on not only how to use ConvertKit, but how to master email marketing.

("What's with the robe, Brennan?!" We hosted our last European conference at an all-inclusive Japanese resort. It was a blast – and a bit weird! – presenting on stage in a kimono.)
